Chapter 1216 - Meeting Old Friends
Three days pa.s.sed by, and now I have gotten quite close to the Crown Tree; it will take me another two days to reach the hundred kilometers diameter of the Crown Tree.
I would have been faster, but I have come across quite many Grimm Monster that wasted quite a lot of my time. Still, at this distance, the numbers of Grimm Monsters have fallen quite much, but their numbers are still higher compared to humans.
Currently, the area where I am standing has a density of Cosmic Energy comparable to the core part of the subterranean, and it will grow denser as I reached closer to the Crown Tree.
The Crown Tree is standing on the world's biggest forbidden zone; its exitance itself is a miracle. Many organizations have researched the Crown Tree, and many speculate that it may be born off from the Miracle Fruit seed.
That would explain its growth and resources, but there is no concrete proof about it, so many people have contradicting views about it.
Well, I do not care to know where the tree had come from; the only thing I care about is the resources I need from it. As long as I get, I will be satisfied.
I killed a monster that had sneaked attacked me, it is quite powerful, but so I am. In these three days, my strength had increased quite a bit.
After fighting with that Mantisman and the weakness, I got from using 1st Burst of Old Set; I started to push myself harder. The day I fought that Mantisman, I nearly killed myself during the refining; the concentration of Cosmic Energy was too much.
Still, it helped me get stronger, and now I could use the 1st Burst with a little less strain.
I ran through the forest when I was suddenly fighting sound; the fighting sound is not new. Monsters fight monsters, Grimm Monsters fight monsters as they also love to eat monsters like us humans.
But this one had humans cursings mix in it; seeing humans in such dense cosmic energy is quite rare. We do not have big strong bodies like them, so only strong humans with special abilities to deal with Cosmic Energy come quickly.
Feeling curious, I moved toward them sneakily; as I got closer, I heard some familiar voices; hearing them, I immediately increased my speed.
A few minutes later, I got close enough to see the fight and saw some old friends I haven't seen in quite a while. Two people, I know very well, but the other three I am unfamiliar with, but I know who they are; teacher had me memorized their info.
Humans' team is unique one could hardly see this outside as all five of them are the holders of Apex Inheritance, but the enemies they are fighting are no slouch either.
There are twenty-eight Grimm Monsters, of twenty-eight four are Dukes while the other twenty-four are Princes. Of twenty-four Princes, there are Two Curse Masters and one Poison Master.
As for the four Dukes Grimm Monsters, they are also the holder of the Apex Inheritance, like the five humans they are fighting.
The fight is very heated, and humans are in very disadvantaged positions seeing they are getting attacked with cursed and poison from the background, but to be honest, I don't want to help them.
There is one whom I don't like, and the feeling is mutual between us. The two I know are Jim and his girlfriend Sarah, who is also the sister of my ex-girlfriend Rachel; we have never seen eye to eye since we met for the first time.
Still, I did not leave my place; Jim is having an extra hard time than others. He can fight, but he is not a fighter, and his performance clearly shows this. Compared to him, his girlfriend is quite a fighter.
I hate to admit it, but she is what one call a natural fighter, and which is further inforced by her battle crazy personality.
I did not join the fight immediately but moved from my position toward the Grimm Monsters; I want to target. It took me quite a few minutes before I reached the perfect position to attack my targets.
I said, and three thin vines erupted from the ground and bounded the three Special Profession Grimm Monsters, who were quite high in the air and just as they bounded it, they started to grow crazily that within seconds all three special professions Grimm Monsters covered thick vine ball which is growing bigger and bigger every moment.
This attack was especially designed for the special profession Grimm Monsters, and against them, this move works three times better.
My sneak attacked immediately stopped the battle as both sides separated and started looking for the a.s.sailant.
"Why stopped fighting?" I said as I walked out of the shadow of the trees; as my voice heard, I found myself becoming the center of attraction between Grimm Monsters and humans.
"Micheal!" Jim and Sarah shouted, seeing me, but their tone had different emotions. Jim sounded happy while Sarah surprise.
"You human b.a.s.t.a.r.ds, relea" one price stage monster want to make surprise attack as it came at me, but tiny fireball struck him on its head before it could reach much close to me.
It fell on the ground dead, under the shocked gazes of everyone as they looked at the tiny bird on my shoulder. The attack did not come from me, but Ashlyn; she had attacked before I could say anything.
Well, its good she attacked; otherwise, I would have to do it myself, and it would not have been easy for me.
As these three Special Profession Grimm Monsters are taking all my focus my energy.
These f.u.c.kers are quite powerful; all three of them are at Prince Stage, which I had never harvested, and now I am harvesting three of them together, so one can imagine how much pressure I am feeling doing that.
